Well, are you running an X server (graphical display) while trying to run the setup? You either would run something like "startx" to manually start it from the console, or have it set up to start in runlevel 5 automatically.

One thing you can try is opening a terminal window, log in as root (su -) and run 'init 3'. The init 3 command Will take you to runlevel 3, which will by default shut down your windowing system.

Then, from the text console, log in and try the script again.
